Emotional Eating always sneaks up on me. It seems like I don't realize it until a little damage is done, then I'm discouraged and just continue. Yesterday I found out the mom of one of my school friends (elementary-high) passed away. It didn't really set in until the kids were in bed and I was on my own. I had already run my nutrition report after dinner because my intention was that if I craved something I would just drink herbal tea. I was within my range for all four categories. Then it hit and I grabbed two handfuls of trail mix - which is not bad for you but put me over my ranges for the day and then I went on to tortilla chips. Wish I could recognize what's going on earlier and re-direct myself. I tend to do this more when my husband is out of town which he was last night.
My boo hoo is over! Snow is starting to melt! Ready for a new day!
